Karate club members take off their shoes for a charity walk – Donegal Daily


Members of Letterkenny Shotokan Karate Club will do their barefoot best in a charity challenge this Saturday.

The barefoot hike will take place at the Aura Leisure Center on Saturday May 28 at 3 p.m.

John Wilkie and the team will take off their shoes and socks to walk the track, and they hope supporters will sponsor every step in support of the Irish Guide Dogs Association.

Those who donate will be entered into a raffle with the chance to win one of six amazing prizes. First prize is 500 liters of home heating oil, or win vouchers for Brian McCormick Sports, Sweeney Electrical, McCallion Jewelers, Early Bird Cleaning or a meal for two!

All funds raised will be donated to the Irish Guide Dogs Association, supporting their life-changing work for blind or visually impaired people and families of autistic children.
